Although probably not the largest in the country, Chinatown in Liverpool is quaint, well decorated, and holds some lovely Chinese restaurants.
Chinatown in Liverpool was the first established “Chinatown” in Europe and could be seen in its early stages in the early 1900s with immigrants having arrived in the area as early as 1855. The Chinese settlers in Liverpool were forced during the war to move from their original settlements and move towards Duke Street and Nelson Street after some bombings in the area. My favourite part of this area is the stunning Chinese Archway at the top of Nelson Street – it looks absolutely stunning and at 15m high, is the largest in Europe.
This was constructed in 2000 and has become a major landmark in the area with tourists regularly flocking to take photos of it (like I did). This was imported from Shanghai in sections and then put together by craftsmen from China upon its arrival in Liverpool. Visually, this is a stunning piece of work and I could honestly photograph it from hundreds of different angles and with different cameras and whatnot. For me, this marks the main area in Chinatown and hence, the reason why when I am in Liverpool, I always end up coming back here, even if it is just for a stroll. What I also enjoy is that some restaurants are open ’til 3am, meaning even the latest of eaters can get a decent Chinese meal in Liverpool.
Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany. With its 3.5 million residents, it is also the second largest city in the European Union. Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to culture as there are so many people from many different countries living and working together. Of course, Berlin is also home of Lomography Germany!
If you've ever used the Lomo'Instant camera, you know that the Fujifilm Instax Mini film ensures amazing and sharp results with vivid colors and natural skin tones. And although we love it the way it is, we also love to experiment. This time we ventured out with monochrome on our minds and got some pretty crazy results — check it out!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
What I got is the Lomo'Instant Black Edition. Its texture and finish is quite simple, and could work as creative space for someone who's into DIY and decorations. In terms of form, it is very handy and acceptable in size. I also love the camera strap that makes it easy to carry.
Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.
We love our cameras. We especially love it when you love our cameras. And we get super pumped when you tell us about it. So when the LC-A 120 got a stunning review from the fellas at The Phoblographer, we were giddy with delight! Not only did they give it a killer, in-depth review, but they also bestowed it with a 5/5 rating and Editor's Choice award! Read on for a little taste of the review and then head to their site to read the whole thing!
Climbing a mountain is always fun. Climbing a volcano is even better. And climbing the highest mountain in a country, well, that tops it all. So you can just imagine how much I enjoyed climbing Mount Hallasan, the highest mountain in South Korea.
With the 68th Cannes Film Festival kicking off today we thought we'd hold our very own film screening right here featuring, in no particular order, some of the best, well-crafted LomoKino videos by our fellow lomographers in the community. From documentary-like shorts to horror, comedy, romance, action, the surreal, and everything in between, we've got you covered. Bring out the popcorn!
In addition to its beautiful natural landscapes and exotic vibe that draws tourists from all over the globe, Laos, largely a Buddhist country, is also home to a remarkable sight not seen just anywhere else in the world. Lomographer khunkrabi recalls his experience.

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."
What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
